Artist Statement


My art practice largely revolves around issues pertaining to the state of our environment, that in which we live and work. Because I begin a painting with a mix of both intuition and found imagery, these landscapes have a broader dream-like familiarity. I am interested in the ways in which we maintain a relationship to the land and what it means to be good stewards. I use imagery that reflects the ironic nature of progress, as defined by us, in a world where all things perish. These landscapes are often revealed in a state of flux, they convey a cycle of birth, death and rebirth that may appear out of balance or dystopian, yet their playful colour pallet contradicts any easy assumption made.
